I have any number of personal friendships that were started by being a host or a
guest within HC. For those folks it is strictly personal communication now - and
it feels GOOD!
In addition some of those relationships are the result of participation in BeW
and CS.
How about your experiences?

I found HC when traveling to Eastern Europe back in 2005.  I am still in contact
with some of my hosts. In fact, we just entertained for a week a fellow from
Glasgow, Scotland.  I don't get many requests in my small town so was delighted
he was not only coming to US but making special plans to come this way.  It was
a great week and he let me know that HC was still alive.  I had thought it died
a slow painful death as there was so little action and I stopped receiving
notification when something sent me a message or request.  Glad to see it is
still here!

A long time ago I stopped receiving requests for accommodation although my door
was always open. Unfortunately, I think this project pales day by day

it's unfortunate, but I start to believe that, too!

I have some really meaningful connections through many year and many stops via
HC. 

Even i may not keep in touch with my HC hosts or guests, many of them have
etched deep mark in my heart. 

I do not use CS even i have an account. 

For me, HC shares a special vibe that resonate with me.

the best story is that i visited Narvik (Norway) and my host came to visit to
visit me in Taiwan (with his mother), and while taking them around to places, i
met a couple later become my best friends for many years....

Life is interesting like that.
